Oxo-biodegradable Technology

Oxo-biodegradable technology is an environmentally responsible solution for your plastic product, film, or packaging needs.

Products made with d2w biodegradable technology look and feel like conventional plastic. The difference is that if a bag or packaging made with d2w escapes collection and ends up as litter in the open environment, it will degrade and  biodegrade in a continuous, irreversible and unstoppable process until there is nothing left. it biodegrades in the same way as nature’s wastes, without leaving toxic residues or microplastics behind.

The d2w accelerates the natural process of oxidation until the product is no longer a plastic and has become a material which can be bio-assimilated (i.e. used as a food source) by bacteria and fungi on land or sea. This has recently been confirmed beyond doubt by a 5-year study sponsored by the French government, called the Oxomar Project.
